Happy weekend, friends! It’s been so lovely here this week that it almost feels like spring. I hope you’ve been enjoying some warm, sunny weather too. Here are some of my favourite things from around the internet this week:
Along with the nice weather will soon come the return of abundant local produce. Finding affordable local food in a city with an absurdly high cost of living is a challenge, but here are some tips for finding cheap groceries in expensive times.
I made granola using this recipe from the Kitchn as a general guide. Stovetop granola is perfect for when you want a bowl in the morning, but don’t have the time or the ingredients to make a huge oven batch. It takes about as long as making oatmeal, and I like granola more, so why not?
This year was my first year with a balcony, and we didn’t really get our act together to make it a nice space before the weather got cold again. This year, we’re moving again, but armed with some cute furniture, planters, and some serious dedication to use our outdoor space. These beautiful outdoor spaces were just the inspiration I needed.
I enjoy doing things with the people I love, but I also enjoy doing them alone. It’s all about balance. Why the weird stigma of doing things alone?
I’ve been enjoying poetry a lot lately, and someone shared a snippet from Ars Poetica #100 on twitter earlier this week:
Poetry is what you find
in the dirt in the corner,
overhear on the bus, God
in the details, the only way
to get from here to there.
The rest of the short poem is just as wonderful.
